Two years ago, I wrote a post called “Lust: Not Just a Man’s Struggle.” I wrote this before I started dating my now husband. I wrote this before I had many views on my blog. As soon as I “revealed” my identity on my blog and started sharing some of my posts on Facebook, I thought about removing this post all together. I went back and re-read it with the intention of permanently deleting it. But I decided against it. This needs to be said.
Two years is a long time. Some of my views have changed since then, and so instead of all-out deleting it, I’ve gone back and I’ve made some minor changes. Okay. Let’s get to it.
P.S. I am not afraid of sexuality – in general, or of my own. So this post will contain a pretty frank discussion of sexuality – if you’re uncomfortable with that, I’m sorry. Turn back now. Continue reading “Lust: Not Just a Man’s Struggle (2.0)”
I don’t often write about pop culture on my blog. I figure there’s enough of that out there.
But when this new “feud” between Miley Cyrus and Taylor Swift caught my attention, I just couldn’t help but react to it. Continue reading “Why I (Mostly) Agree With Miley Cyrus”
We can’t be good at everything. I know that. I’ve never considered myself a perfectionist. For example, In grade 3, my best friend at the time failed a math test. So did I. She cried for 10 minutes. I wondered why she cared so much. In high school, I was happy with 70’s. Although I aim for much higher now that I’m in university, I’m still not hard on myself when it comes to school. I’m not a perfectionist when it comes to my personal space either. I’m disorganized. I’m a slob. I’m messy. I’m perfectly fine with making mistakes when it comes to work – I know that I will learn from them. However, when it comes to personal failures, I feel like the world is about to end.

“Therefore, since we are surrounded by such a great cloud of witnesses,
let us throw off everything that hinders and the sin that so easily entangles.”
Have you removed everything that hinders you and entangles you? Have I? No. But I’m working on it. Continue reading “Hebrews 12:1 – Doing the Hard Thing”
Okay, so, this is my first new post in like two weeks. I’m sorry! My semester is almost over and I’ll be able to spend more time blogging, for those who care! Anyway, I wanted to talk about something that happened last night. Something that initially made me really upset, but then got me thinking. Thinking about how I present myself on Facebook – which up until last night, I thought I was doing a pretty good job. Continue reading “Reevaluating my Social Network Life”
Do you have a role model? If so – who are they? Where did you meet them? Do you even know them? Did you see them on TV? In a movie? Did you read about them in a book? A magazine? Are they old? Young? Alive? Dead? Whether you are aware of it or not, you probably have some sort of role model in your life – or you have in the past. With the current state of technology and mass media, we talk a lot about “role models”. Who is one. Who isn’t one. Who should be one. Why?

Hey – Christians out there. How many “Christian books” have you read lately? I don’t mean non-fiction, informational, inspirational, or theological books. I mean like, novels. Fiction. But…Christian. Christian fiction. I’ll be honest here. It’s been a while since I’ve actually read any Christian fiction (Chri-Fi?). However, part of my job at the church requires me to input new books into our library system…so I’ve been reading a lot of back covers lately. And I’ve been laughing my butt off. Continue reading “Christian Fiction”
What do you see in the pictures above? Two people at the beach, right? Well, many people I know would say that she (Selena Gomez – if you were unaware) needs to “cover up.” But what about him (Zac Efron?) Why doesn’t he need to cover up? Just look at those glistening abs! Why shouldn’t he put a shirt on? Continue reading “Bikinis and Board-shorts”
